The winners of the second edition of the Richelieu Awards for Young Designers were announced recently during a ceremony held in Montreal, Que.
The contest, sponsored by Montreal-based Richelieu, provides an opportunity for students and young professionals in interior design to stand out and get noticed.
The challenge consisted in designing a layout for an optimized and versatile living space in a 450-square-foot micro condo according to universal accessibility standards for people with reduced mobility.
The winners, André Jacques — a graduate from a school of interior design in St- George-de-Beauce, Que. — and Charles Laurence Proulx and Gil Hardy-Groleau — from the design firm NÓS Architectes in Montreal — proposed well-balanced and accessible solutions.
Each winner was awarded a trophy and a $1000 scholarship.
